The Downy Woodpecker

The Downy Woodpecker is just one of our little feathered friends in winter. The Downy,  Hairy and the Piliated like the suit cake that we purchase and also the peanut butter/suet mixture we make at home and place in the holes of the big bird feeder. This little fellow is so brightly coloured with his coat of black and white and his little cap of red. I am posting this to two memes today Camera Critters at and Straight out of the Camera Sunday at

G'eve Valerie ~ WOW! All you gals are having such luck with these woodpeckers ... I am GREEN with envy, my camera is never handy when ours comes by.

Great pics.
Have a beautiful weekend.

The Downy woodie is a pretty bird, especially the male with that spot of red on its head.

He's beautiful! We have some of those in our trees. They really like to peck at the bugs. Have a great day!

I love the Downys and would be SO happy if I could get a picture like that straight out of MY camera.
